Flor de Filipinas
OK, this may not be the best cigar in the world,, but it's clearly not the worst. A gal I know gave me a box of these when she returned from the Philippines - nice gal! I know how much these cost so I can honestly say that for the money, these are not bad. There's no bite, although they're not exactly smooth. The flavor is not what you'd expect in a Latin cigar, but then again it is not something that you would want to put out once you lite it up. It kind of grows on you. It's not bad enough to throw away, but not good enough to go out of your way to find them. Kind of like certain foods, you'll eat it, but you'd never actually order it at a restaurant. Overall, if someone gives you one of these, don't turn it down, you might think that it's not half bad.
